First Five Years of Practice

The first few years of practice can be among the most memorable for any midwife. There are challenges associated with entry into any career, and midwifery is no exception. After years of training and learning, transitioning into clinical practice in Ontario can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. Not only are you providing excellent clinical care; you may be adjusting to life in a new community; you may be caring for your own family; and you're establishing your professionalism—let alone figuring out where you can find the best coffee at the local hospital!

If you joined the AOM as a student, you may already be aware of the host of resources and supports you can access for help with hospital integration or developing your professional profile. If not, review the benefits of membership, explore our website and be sure to follow us on social media. We're here to support this special transition period into becoming a midwife leader in your community!
